As Grand Theft Auto fans wait patiently for the next instalment there have been questions about whether GTA 5 will release on the Xbox 720 and Sony PS4, as this would be the ideal game to build up an install base on the next-gen consoles. While many gamers are looking at what Microsoft and Sony have to offer with their upcoming consoles some are suggesting that decisions might be made in accordance with specific exclusive games, although GTA 5 for next-gen consoles will make this a hard decision for fans of the series.
We are under the impression GTA 5 PS4 and Xbox 720 ports could be expected and we are getting hints that an announcement could be on the cards. With PC gamers also waiting for confirmation about GTA 5 on the PC, it seems the GTA 5 release date will be at a later date for both PC and next-gen consoles.
In an interesting article on Examiner they talk about the expectation of an announcement soon as an investor call event will be held by Take-Two Interactive on May 16. In the past similar events have amounted in new announcements and details so we are keeping our fingers crossed for an incoming reveal next month.

Considering the gap between instalments Grand Theft Auto games are very popular and GTA 5 on next-gen consoles will be an ideal way to branch out in sales with a multi-platform title that could attract many gamers to the new systems.
